Beneath my Feet

Each Friday, WordPress asks us to look through our lenses in a different way. In the past, they have challenged us to get close. Gaze up. Peek out the window. Today, we have look down and document the world beneath our feet

Today I visited Delaire Graff Estate, nestled between majestic mountains and overlooking the vineyards of Stellenbosch.

There are incredible views,  restaurants,  a winery, Lodges, beautiful gardens, a Spa, incredible artworks and luxury boutiques.

In the building I found a pip floor!IMG_7357

The floor consists of peach pips that are packed by hand onto a glued surface and filled with a silica sand and resin mixture, then sealed. The sharp edges of the pips are sanded off to expose the red hue of the pips and give the floor a natural wood feeling – making it warm, therapeutic and comfortable to walk on with bare feet. The floors are uniquely South African, natural and the design and color can be customized.
